Planning Board hears informal plans for Rutland Street subdivision
Peter Howe, representing the Brown estate, met with the Planning Board on June 26 to request an informal discussion of conceptual plans to subdivide 24.6 acres of the Raymond Brown Trust Property on Rutland Street. The property includes Parcels 23 and 26 on Assessors' Map 36, and is adjacent to Parcel 22, part of the town-owned Mannis Conservation Land.
Abutters Marc and Ginny Lamere (374 Rutland Street) and John Bakewell (290 Rutland Street) offered information on trails within and adjacent to the proposed development. Given the familiarity of the abutters with the trails, the Board recommended that the developer and the abutters begin a dialog, particularly if the development is undertaken as a conservation cluster where trail easements and common land would be involved. Peter Howe endorsed the suggestion.
In other business, the Board went into closed session to discuss strategy for pending litigation with the board as defendant and Valchuis, et al., as plaintiff regarding property on Berry Corner Lane (Map 7, Parcel 29).
